Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Tooting

Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Tooting. I would like to know the understand why all Tooting solicitors aren't included on all bank panels?

Before the recession most banks had an approach to risk which is different from today. The Financial Services Authority in 2010 instigated a thematic review into mortgage fraud which concluded: know the solicitors on your panel. Accordingly, mortgage companies have subsequently requiredmore information from law firms concerning their processes and the staff employed by them and set certain criteria such as completing a minimum volume of transactions. Many law practices have been removed from lender panels even though they had an exemplary track record, no complaints and no claims and didn't just 'dabble' in conveyancing. Such firms found it impossible satisfy the minimum amount of transactions the lenders required.

Are there restrictive covenants that are commonly picked up as part of conveyancing in Tooting?

Restrictive covenants can be picked up when reviewing land registry title as part of the legal transfer of property in Tooting. An 1874 stipulation that was seen was ‘The houses to be erected on the estate are each to be of a uniform elevation in accordance with the drawings to be prepared or approved by the vendor’s surveyor…’

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a quick, chain free conveyancing. Tooting is where the house is located. Is there any guidance you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Tooting are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Tooting you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Tooting may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.

Do I need to be concerned about brokers that I am dealing with are suggesting a nationwide conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Tooting conveyancing practice?

As is the case with many professional services, often recommendations from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies may put forward solicitors to retain. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but sometimes there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your preferred lawyer. You need to be aware that many mortgage providers specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage related work in your transaction.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Tooting. I have stumble upon a site which appears to be the perfect offering If there is a chance to get all the legals done via web that would be preferable. Do I need to be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?

I am buying a garden flat in Tooting. Conveyancing solicitor has been waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. I was told today I was advised that the owner must send the insurance documents for the flat above in addition. Why would my property lawyer need to review the insurance for the other flat? Is it really necessary? We have been waiting for the last 2 weeks…

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in Tooting to discover Conveyancing in Tooting in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the tenant's to insure their individual flats rather than the landlord insuring the entire building - which is definitely preferable. Do contact your conveyancing practitioner but it would appear that your conveyancer is seeking to verify that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the 1st floor cannot be reconstructed as a result of lack of insurance cover.
